In February 2022, my cousin Judy alerted me to a real estate advertisement that she had seen in the local Ipswich newspaper concerning the sale of “Berry House.”
Berry House was built by William Berry, father of Elizabeth Berry, who married John Hughes Van Cooten.
A Wikipedia article is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Berry_residence
The Queensland Heritage Register listing is at https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/heritage-register/detail/?id=600570
The photographs from the real estate listing show that the house has been stunningly renovated.
The history contained on the Queensland Heritage Register citation indicates that William Berry arrived in the colony by 1843, but my research indicates that this is unlikely, and suggests that this may be a conflation of two William Berrys, but that’s the subject of a future post.
